Week 4 of the NFL Season is here, and tonight has a playoff feel to it with a pair of teams squaring off while looking to avoid a third loss before the month of September ends.
The San Francisco 49ers will have All-Pro tight end Vernon Davis tonight against the St. Louis Rams. But they won’t have All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis. Both players are battling hamstring injuries of varying degrees.
The Rams’ inactives are running back Isaiah Pead, offensive tackle Rodger Saffold, defensive end William Hayes offensive lineman Barrett Jones, offensive lineman Brandon Washington, offensive tackle Mike Person and tight end Mike McNeill.
Pead is a curious inactive, and no reason was given for Pead’s status. He wasn’t not listed on the team’s injury report heading into the game. Rookie Zac Stacy is active for the first time this season and is expected to see his first career touches.
